The Sony MDR comes in with a straight plug which is better suited if you have a device having audio jack at the top or bottom. The plug on the Bose AE2 is a tilted one. The Sony MDR beats the Bose in terms of the audio cable quality and flexibility. The audio cable on the Sony MDR is a coiled one which offers more flexibility as it can be easily extended. Bose has a comparatively thin and straight cable that can be easily torn apart. Also, the cable length provided with the MDR is 3m, which is significantly longer as compared to the Bose AE2 which is only 1.2m. A good thing about the Bose AE2 is that you can replace the cable if it stops functioning. This is possible because the audio cable connects to the headphone with a 3.5mm audio jack.
